President Thomas Jefferson felt that the founding and design of the University of Virginia in 1819 was his most lasting achievement. Today, spanning 1,065 acres and more than one hundred buildings, the UVA campus features major architectural works by McKim, Mead & White, Michael Graves, Robert A. M. Stern, Hugh Stubbins, Hartman-Cox Architects, and Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects. University of Virginia: The Campus Guide, second edition, offers a beautifully photographed volume and the only detailed architectural history of the campus.
The UVA Campus Guide reveals the stories behind over one hundred buildings, historic gardens, art galleries, theaters, and works of sculpture.
Exquisitely painted three-dimensional watercolor maps by architectural illustrator Tom Gastel highlight the featured buildings and landscapes across campus in eight self-guided Walks.
Award-winning historian Richard Guy Wilson revisits the original UVA Campus Guide (1998) and explores new buildings with university architect David J. Neuman.
